I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Imagination Technologies.
Interview Details –
The Hiring process consisted (for me) on three steps.
First step: the hiring manager called me for a generic phone interview. He asked me something about myself, about my past and current jobs and responsibilities.
The second step was a technical interview regarding VHDL. It was simple questions, like "How can you do a moltiplication with only adders (and things like that).
The last step was by skype.They asked me really technical questions (How can you realize a NAND port, etc.)
Interview Question – The skype interview was too technical and to ASIC-oriented. I work for 4 years. At the end of University I could answer it, now I forgot a lot... Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Imagination Technologies.
Interview Details –
I had a technical job interview on site, Watford, for a Sr Digital Designer permanent role.
Just took a flight and I was there, full of expectations because I knew that was very interesting.
The interview well passed (even if the principal engineer spent all the time on its notebook, while another lead engineer was interviewing me), they wanted even to hire me (with a bad/inappropriate salary for my experience!), but some of the other Engineers, I met while I was waiting for my interview, were completely out of head, absolutely unacceptable even embarrassing.
Unacceptable to work in that kind of environment.
It seems some of them doesn't really like working with foreign Engineer.
Strange thing is that the HR doesn't know anything about those employees behavioural (or doesn't care?).
Interview Question – For my experience, the questions were easy Answer Question
Reason for Declining –
Not at all the right place to work, if you like having around good people only !
Anyway, bad salary.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Imagination Technologies.
Interview Details –
I was contacted by a recruiting agency about my application on their website.
Next, I had a phone interview with the recruiter of that agency followed by another phone interview with the recruiter at ImgTec, in which he detailed the position and my responsibilities.
Afterwards, I had to take a C test. It was slightly difficult, lots of trick questions.
In the final step, I had a face to face interview with two engineers at ImgTec HQ. The interview consisted of a questions related to 5 topics:
- OpenGL Specification
- 3D Graphics concepts
- 3D Math
- How computers work (Operating systems, hardware, etc..)
- C programming language.
I wasn't extended an offer since I was only familiar with OpenGL from a programmers perspective and they required someone who knew the specification in great detail as well.
Interview Question – There was question in the C test about jumps and goto's with different bracket levels. I can't recall the exact question, but it had to do with different scope levels and jumping between them. In those scope levels different variable were initialized and then question was what the output of a given variable would be. Answer Question
